Vegetarian recipes and info

Vegetarian ChristmasWhatever is served at a traditional Christmas dinner, meat probably holds pride of place, and what good is that to us veggies? Here are some ideas to mix and match for a vegetarian Christmas menu.

Scrambled Tofu

Tahini

Homemade tahiniStore-bought tahini is expensive, especially considering that it’s nothing more than puréed sesame seeds. If you have a high-speed blender, you can make your own tahini in minutes.

Sun-Dried Tomato and Olive Bread

Spinach Recipes

Boiled Rice

Boiled riceI used to hate making rice, until I realized that the world won’t end if I ignore conventional wisdom. It’s ok to remove the lid to stir during cooking and to add more water, and it doesn’t even matter if there’s liquid left at the end. As when cooking pasta, you can just drain whatever’s left when the rice is ready.

Veggie Burgers
